http://www.answering-christianity.com/quran_moral_code.htm


With Allah Almighty’s Grace, Mercy and Will, I have gone through the entire Glorious Quran, Word for Word and Verse for Verse, and came up with the list of the Moral Law and Code in our Holy Book.  All Praise and Glory and Thanks are due to Allah Almighty Alone!  The table below can also be used as a Topic Search on the Glorious Quran.  To do word searches on this page, press the “CONTROL” and “F” keys, and type in your topic. 

  • For example, you can search for “bribery” or “bullying”.  Simple word searches won’t find the Noble Verses that contain these topics.  But the table below will.

  • The following are the “Do” and “Do not do” Commands that Muslims are obligated to live by, in the Glorious Quran.  You can also use this website’s www.QuranSearch.com to verify all of the Noble Verses, below.

    How did Previous Scriptures alter if God says His Words cannot be Changed?

    Without pondering upon all the verses of the Qur’an, it is impossible to understand it correctly. Furthermore, this understanding can only be granted if God wishes. This fact has been revealed in the following verse:

     “It is such that We clarify the Revelations to a people who think.” (Qur’an 10:24)

    This means, people who do not think over the Qur’an’s verses, cannot grasp it correctly.

    Having true faith in God is also an essential prerequisite to understand the Qur’an correctly:

    “When you recite the Qur’an, We place an obscuring veil between you and those who do not believe in the hereafter. And we have placed coverings over their hearts, preventing them from understand it, and a heaviness in their ears. And if you mention your Lord alone in the Qur’an, they turn their backs and run away.” (Qur’an 17:45) Read more of this post

    Refuting The Argument Regarding “Allah’s Words Do Not Change”

    By Bassam Zawadi

    Christian Argument

    Surah 6:115 and 18:27 state that no one can change the words of Allah. The Torah and Gospel were the words of Allah. Since they couldn’t have changed that means that Islam testifies to the incorruptibility of the text of the Bible.

    My Response
    Here are the verses in question:

    Surah 6:115

    The word of thy Lord doth find its fulfilment in truth and in justice: None can change His words: for He is the one who heareth and knoweth all. S. 6:115

    Surah 18:27

    And recite (and teach) what has been revealed to thee of the Book of thy Lord: none can change His Words, and none wilt thou find as a refuge other than Him. S. 18:27 Read more of this post

    Equality of Men and Women in Al-Qur’an

    The Quran makes it clear that Women and Men are equal in the eyes of God

    One of the most misunderstood areas in Islam is that of the position of women in the religion. The general perception in the West is that Muslim women are subjugated and almost seen as property. While not all Muslims deal with women as inferior, this is unfortunately true in some segments of the Muslim world and this treatment is supposedly justified by the religion. However, when we look at the basis of the religion, the Quran, we see a very different picture. In the Quran God makes it very clear that men and women are equal.

    [3:195] Their Lord responded to them: “I never fail to reward any worker among you for any work you do, be you male or female – you are equal to one another. Thus, those who immigrate, and get evicted from their homes, and are persecuted because of Me, and fight and get killed, I will surely remit their sins and admit them into gardens with flowing streams.” Such is the reward from GOD. GOD possesses the ultimate reward. Read more of this post

    Reward for Good Deeds in the Quran

    Verse’s from the Holy Qur’an referring to the Believers who do good deeds and their reward of Jannah (i.e. Paradise).

    And give glad tidings to those who believe and do righteous good deeds, that for them

    will be Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise). Every time they will be provided with a fruit there from, they will say: “This is what we were provided with before,” and they will be given things in resemblance and they shall have therein Azwajun Mutahharatun (purified mates or wives) and they will abide therein forever.


    ➢Surah Al-Baqarah 2: Ayah 25

    And those who believe and do RIGHTEOUS GOOD DEEDS, they are dwellers or paradise, they will dwell therein forever.

    ➢Surah Al-Baqarah 2: Ayah 82

    But those who believe and do DEEDS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, We shall admit them to Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), abiding therein forever. Therein they shall have Azwajun Mutahharatun (purified mates or wives), and We shall admit them to shades wide and ever deepening. Read more of this post

    Prophets Killer (Israelite) in Bible

    Al-Qur’an infoms us at least in nine surahs about the Israelite killed the Prophets of Allah. These are three of the verses.
    Al-Qur’an 2:87

    ….But is it [not] that EVERY TIME A MESSENGER CAME TO YOU, [O Children of Israel], with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? AND A PARTY [OF MESSENGERS] YOU DENIED AND ANOTHER PARTY YOU KILLED.

    Al-Qur’an  2:61

    ….. That was because they [repeatedly] disbelieved in the signs of Allah AND KILLED THE PROPHETS WITHOUT RIGHT. That was because they disobeyed and were [habitually] transgressing.

    Al-Qur’an  3:21

    ….. Those who disbelieve in the signs of Allah and KILL THE PROPHETS WITHOUT RIGHT and kill those who order justice from among the people – give them tidings of a painful punishment. Read more of this post

    Is Paul a Prophet According to Quran?

    POSTED ON 

    by Ebrahim Saifuddin

    The Claim

    In all their desperation Christian missionaries have now started to claim that according to the Quran Paul was a prophet of God. Their conclusions are based on conjectures and the misrepresentation of the text of the Quran. Simply put, there is not a single place in the Quran which even mentions the name “Paul” let alone mentioning him to be a prophet of God.

    To make such claims the Christian missionaries run to Tafsir Ibn Kathir. They read out the tafsir by Ibn Kathir regarding the 14th ayah (Verse) of the 36th Surah (Chapter) of the Quran.

    Verse under Question:
    36:14

    إِذْ أَرْسَلْنَا إِلَيْهِمُ اثْنَيْنِ فَكَذَّبُوهُمَا فَعَزَّزْنَا بِثَالِثٍ فَقَالُوا إِنَّا إِلَيْكُم مُّرْسَلُونَ

    When We (first) sent to them two apostles, they rejected them: But We strengthened them with a third: they said, “Truly, we have been sent on a mission to you.” – [Translation: Abdullah Yusuf Ali]

    Christian missionaries say that Ibn Kathir says in his Tafsir of the Quran that this verse refers to Paul of Tarsus and thus Paul (Bulus) is one of the Messengers of God according to Islam.

    Let’s see whether Ibn Kathir makes such a claim.

    Ibn Kathir writes:

    “The names of the first two Messengers were Sham`un and Yuhanna, and the name of the third was Bulus, and the city was Antioch (Antakiyah).”

    But the question is this Ibn Kathir’s view? Read more of this post

    The variation of pronouns in the Qur’an is a sign of its eloquence and miraculous nature

    A non muslim wants to know the reason why the quran was also revealed in reported speeches. An example is where Allah says in Al Inshiqaq vs 24.And Allah knows best what they gather( of good and bad deeds). That is Allah mentioning his name in terms of 2nd person.


    Praise be to Allah.

    The Qur’an was revealed in a plain Arabic tongue; one aspect of the literary style of the Arabs is that the speaker may refer to himself sometimes in the FIRST PERSON, sometimes in the THIRD PERSON, sometimes in the SINGULAR and sometimes in the PLURAL. This variation is part of eloquence and good style. NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND THIS EXCEPT THOSE WHO KNOW ARABIC AND HAVE A SUFFICIENT GRASP OF ITS DIFFERENT WAYS OF EXPRESSION.

    The Qur’an was not revealed in only one style, as the questioner thinks; rather it uses a variety of different styles; this is part of its miraculous nature and eloquence.  Read more of this post
